Hailing from the mountains of Northern Colorado, Kyri Lorenz has a long history of meddling with concepts of nature and identity, mysticism and mythology. Illustrative and stylistic choices are large motivators for their usual content, taking inspiration from masters like Albrecht Dürer and Egon Schiele, as well as modern styles found in comics and graphic design. Though their primary focus is block printing, they dabble in any medium they can get their hands on (and in). Traditional and digital drawing, oil painting, photography, embroidery and textile arts, and ceramic sculpture are all part of their artistic repertoire.
If it involves creation and inspiration, Kyri is there, getting their mitts all over it and learning how best to make it serve their whims. Most of the time, this is easy and the technique or medium is more than happy to comply. Sometimes, it takes a little more finagling, but there’s always something to show for it at the end.
They got their BA in Visual Arts from Hollins University in Roanoke, VA, and are currently living and working in Cambridge, MA.
